My story

[p]On the 16-Jul-2020, I was diagnosed with an Inoperable, Stage 4, Oesophageal Cancer. This cancer has already spread to my stomach and my lungs.[/p][p]One of the many tips my Oncologist told me was to stay fit... I told him 'I do CrossFit', he rolled his eyes. ;-)[/p][p]That day I decided I would stay as fit as I possibly could and that I would drag my family, friends and people who had never met me (my new friends) on this journey with me. I'll help you all get a little fitter and you'll all help me mentally with my Fight Against Cancer.[/p][p]So, here we are - 50 Reps of a given exercise everyday until I've beaten this, I will also throw the occasional curve ball to keep you all on your toes.[/p][p]Abbies Sparkle Foundation, stepped in very early to help my family and me, so I feel it only right to return the favour and maybe help some others suffering from this dreadful disease.[/p]
